Summary: I really wanted to like this camera. My whole life I've been a Sony Cyber-shot fan and owner. I should have taken the size of the product more seriously. I looked at the dimensions and still thought that it couldn't be right. Everything was perfect except for the size. When I opened it and put it in my hand it basically looked like a child's toy camera, possibly smaller than an iPhone 4s. If size is not an issue than you would enjoy this.
Summary: This camera broke literally 2 days after I got it. The view screen became filled with white "holes" that you couldn't see through. I returned the product as was directed me, and so far, (a month later) it still has not been credited to my account or have I been notified of its arrival back to them. I am so so disappointed in Sony and Amazon for failure to communicate effectively.
Summary: I used to own another Sony Cybershot camera a long time ago. This one is made of cheap flimsy plastic body. The sides are metal, but they seem to be made without care to detail. Made in China. I didn't try taking a picture with this, and just returned it. Canon cameras seem to be made better.
Summary: The picture quality is on par with that of a good cell phone. File sizes are much larger than my previous camera, but image quality is noticeably worse. There is no option to force flash. The flash options are auto and off. There is no option to disable review after taking each picture. The view finder is not very good either. One saving grace of this camera is that the video quality is much better than expected.
Summary: I've had this camera less than 90 days. The white frame on the bottom of the camera next to where you attach a tripod has snapped! Contacted Sony CS and was told "Physical damage is not considered part of the warranty." Normal use, not even every day. Then the CSR told me that the physical damage voids the warranty! What a joke.
Summary: My old Canon Powershot 1300 takes beautiful outdoor photos but is poor in low light and sometimes mediocre with the flash. I purchased the Sony because it was supposed to be excellent in low light and also had twice the zoom of my Canon. The price seemed excellent for a good compact digital camera. Unfortunately the fully charged battery lasted only about an hour.
Summary: War von den Testberichten über diese Kamera angetan. Als ich das Produkt allerdings in den Händen hatte, war sie für meine Hände viel zu klein und durch Hartplastik auch nicht wertig genug. Habe sie deshalb nicht behalten und zurück gegeben.
